In football, where 22 strong players collide with each other, dizzying scenes often come out if they are not considerate of each other.
It was the same on the 5th when Lee Kang-in (22, Real Mallorca), who is called the future of Korean football, delivered the news of victory against the giant, Real Madrid. Starting on the left wing, he led his team, Real Mallorca, to a 1-0 victory.
On this day, Lee Kang-in did not record a goal or help, but he harassed the opponent by constantly going back and forth between the center and the side. It was different from fears of sabotage as he failed to transfer even after shaking the transfer market this winter. Rather, it stood out that he stood up like a romp in the face of a rough tackle by opposing midfielder Federico Valverde.
Lee Kang-in suffered a major crisis in the 19th minute of the second half when Mallorca led 1-0. In a situation in which he was fighting for the ball in midfield, he fell to Federico Valverde’s rough back tackle.
While lying on the ground, Lee Kang-in grabbed his calf and complained of pain. It was such a dangerous scene that the referee pulled out a yellow card for Valverde and put the brakes on him. It was fortunate that Lee Kang-in played the rest of the game by kicking a free kick with his body straight.
However, what raised the controversy in the scene was Valverde’s expression immediately after the tackle. Despite being warned, Valverde smiled meaningfully, as if satisfied. It was compared to how Valverde’s colleague Ceballos approached and comforted Lee Kang-in. 온라인카지노
After receiving a yellow card, Valverde was substituted off the field for Luka Modric. After sitting on the bench, Valverde even punched his chair as if he didn’t like it.
In fact, this is not the first time Valverde has attempted a rough foul against Lee Kang-in. Valverde made a rough tackle on Lee Kang-in who was trying to dribble in the first game against Uruguay in the Qatar World Cup group stage last November, followed by an uppercut ceremony as a provocation. He, who was criticized for his incomprehensible behavior at the time, took another threatening action, so there was no bad relationship.
Valverde’s repeated unexpected actions make him underestimate himself despite his excellent skills. He also caused controversy over racial discrimination at the 2017 Under-20 World Cup held in Korea with a tearing ceremony.
